Latest Update Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in the White Sox loss to the Indians on Tuesday night. Wed Aug, 27, 01:07 AM
Has a tremendously live bat with power to either gap. Runs very well. Rangy and very athletic at shortstop, he can also play other positions due to great versatility.
Flaws: : Doesn't walk nearly enough. Doesn't hit with as much power as his ability suggests. Is still a bit raw in several aspects of the game. Is also a bit too streaky.
The home run was his 13th of the season. Ramirez continues to be a valuable fantasy asset, especially given the thinness at the shortstop position. He's slashing .285/.318/.418 and also has 18 stolen bases. Analyst: Spencer Silva
He lead off the game with a home run, but did practically nothing the rest of the game. Ramirez started the season on fire, but has really struggled to hit the ball since the All-Star break. However, he should still be owned in a majority of fantasy leagues.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
After a torrid start to the season and a slumping June and July, Ramirez seems to have gotten back on track and his offensive production is on an upward trajectory once again. He's hit safely in all but one game here in August and is batting .389 (14-for-36) with one home run and seven RBI this month. It looks like you should be able to count on him to finish the season strong, so keep him in that active lineup.Analyst: Howard Bender
Ramirez smacked his third home run since returning from the All-Star break on Saturday night while raising his batting up to .303 with 14 RBI and two stolen bases over his last 66 at-bats. The White Sox shortstop has been known for heating up in the summer months, and considering the way he has been swinging the bat this season, there is a good chance we could see 15-plus home runs and 20-plus stolen bases by the end of the year from this 32-year-old, which would be the first time he would go over those marks in the same season in his career.
